Planning a Buddy’s Golf trip?
Golf Blog by the Mel Sole Golf School.
Before you even start your preparations for your upcoming buddy’s trip, there are certain things you need to take into consideration.
The golf trip is among the last bastions of fraternity in our culture. People move away, start families, become wrapped up in careers. The annual golf excursion becomes one of the few junctures former partners-in-crime get to revive their camaraderie.
From a misinformed invite to a misunderstanding of the rules, just one slip can sink the entire (friend)ship. For those planning an upcoming golf trip, recognize the following faux pas to prevent your outing from falling into such despair.
This comes off as cruel, and seems to be at odds against the friendship ethos. However, one of the primary ambitions of said trip is to, you know, play golf. Speaking from personal experience, non-golfers who participate in weekend-long trips become bored within hours, often turning into a distraction and, more times than not, hurting the morale of the rest of the unlucky souls in the group.
